Serenata – simplicity at its best!

” nothing is more simple than greatness; indeed to be simple is to be great”

– Ralph Waldo Emerson


Indeed! The Serenata annual benefit concert last Saturday ,March 18,2017 was so simple in terms of the costumes and frills but the performance was superb and its charitable cause made the concert great! This was their 12th season and for the record I only missed two of their concert ūüôā ¬†addicted!


The Serenata Children’s Choir


The concert was under the musical direction of ever so beautiful Ms. Sylvia Delos Santos. Directed by Mr. Jerry Lagrimas and the ever energetic host of the night Mr.Ahjid Sayas. The ever supported husband of Ms. delos Santos – Mr. Teddy Delos Santos spotted playing Cello as assistant principal.


The introduction of all male Chamber Chorale was impressive noting that it was only formed five months ago and to gather each one for practice was challenging to everyone involve.

The string orchestra was as usual in their best performance !

I enjoyed the participation of Knight Movers with their Aladdin dance intermission

The finale

Here’s some of the clips of the performance taken by iPhone ūüôā I could upload more but my storage plan is not enough..and so .. let me advise you to come and see them in action next season.

Congratulations to all!

Serenata shines at seven

Its been awhile i¬†haven’t¬†written¬†anything¬†in my blog and i wont miss this¬†opportunity¬†to share with you the spectacular show of Serenata Children’s Choir and String Chamber Orchestra.How i wished i was able to take more pictures but i opted to listen and watched the show instead of doing all the¬†clicks!

The musical presentation was under the musical direction of Ms. Sylvia de los Santos and was held in American International School of Jeddah last Feb. 6, 2012. Though my children were never a part of the show, I am always looking forward to attend the yearly presentation. I am amazed by ¬†their talent and the¬†hard work¬†behind the journey of Serenata, not to mention their humble objective of promoting the Filipino cultural values and to extend financial help to well deserved students…Truly an inspiring organization…HurrAY!
